Dysfunctional Groups

This link, It’s a Mystery (Part I): Dysfunctional Behaviour and the Pagan Scene, made an appearance on one of the mailing lists I belong to. It is a really interesting look at why so many Pagan groups are dysfunctional, and reinforces all my reasons for being as solitary as I am.

This articles bring up a few thoughts. Firstly, I don’t think that only Pagan groups have these problems. I’m sure groups of like-minded dysfunctional folks exist in all religions. As they say, there is nothing like religion to bring people together. And, not to be cruel, but those snake handling churches seem pretty dysfunctional to me.

It also makes me wonder if maybe I should become more active in the Pagan community. I’m not saying I have it all together (I’m sure you all know that!), but maybe I do have something I can offer. Maybe, I don’t really know…
